BGCEV + BGCMP Merger
BGCEV + BGCMP Merger
In 2019, we launched a campaign called "Greater Together" that culminated in a merger of Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix (BGCMP) and Boys & Girls Clubs of East Valley (BGCEV). In 2020, we called our new, merged organization Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley (BGCAZ). The information below shared the motivation behind this merger for both our staff and our supporters. We are keeping this page online because it marks an important milestone in our organization.
Why Are Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix and East Valley Coming Together?
Starting in 2020, Boys & Girls Club of East Valley-Metro Phoenix (BGCEVMP)* will serve more than 16,000 members across the Valley and an additional 40,000 other youth in 27 Clubs, making it one of the largest Boys & Girls Clubs organizations in the nation and one of the largest youth-serving organizations in all of Arizona.
The principles behind this merger are to serve more kids and serve kids better. Here's how:
1. Deepen Organizational Health
Eliminate redundancies in operations and increase our evaluation and outreach to move the organization in the direction of its goals.
2. Strategic Partnerships
Deepen our partnerships with school districts, measure outcomes and pilot initiatives to help our youth succeed.
Expand collaborations with the USDA, State agencies, and nonprofits and work toward meaningful and lasting change in the lives of the families we serve.
3. Expansion of Existing Programs
Cohesive implementation of programs will allow for better evaluation of programs at scale, providing an opportunity for informed decision making and program development.
4. Leveraged Marketing and Fundraising
Continue to expand our long-term relationships with many corporations and foundations.
Engage with donors, partners and volunteers in more meaningful ways.
Clearly market our programs to families and schools.
To Our Staff: Thank You!
Consolidating resources into a singular organization is a bold plan. Creating a plan devised for maximum success has involved countless conversations between our boards of directors and senior leaders, organizational analysis, stakeholder input, and research that has been gleaned from a nationwide enthusiasm for consolidation in order to increase efficiencies and impact.
